There are many organising systems for digital photos, but they all use external index files, and all the cataloguing effort will be lost if you change to another system in years to come. EXIF data is built into the picture file. I have found a program called exifer which allows easy editing of the data, including changing the date/time taken, author, subject etc on single or multiple pictures. However I have not found a program to search EXIF data for a particular subject, or date, to produce pix for a slide show. WindowsXP seems to use some EXIF data but not all. Any ideas picking out pix using this method for instance all the pix which have 'flower' in the subject list ?
